The head of the Adnyamathanha Traditional Lands Association says the majority of Adnyamathanha people have been denied a vote on a proposed radioactive waste management facility near the town of Hawker in the Flinders Rangers. Wallerberdina Station, located approximately 30km northwest of Hawker on Adnyamathanha country, has been shortlisted by the Federal Government for a facility that will permanently hold low-level nuclear waste and temporarily hold intermediate level waste. It is one of three sites, the other two situated close to Kimba, that were shortlisted by the Federal Government to store nuclear waste. The selection process is entering its final stages, with a postal ballot beginning on August 20 to measure community support for the three nominated sites.
